Take the Quiz
We are very proud to introduce our Emsella Chair to Guernsey Skin and Beauty.
Let me start by saying that around 85% of our clients have reported being affected by stress incontinence to different degrees. Interestingly this is not only affecting older women or ladies who have had babies, the other thing that people have in common is the inability to discuss this and the fact that there is nothing they can do apart from wear pads or in severe cases, have an operation.
This plain looking chair does wonders for ladies and gentlemen who cough, sneeze, jump or run and a little bit of urine leaks out.
There are many reasons why we suffer from a bit of stress incontinence.
Natural Body Ageing
All of the above cause our pelvic floor muscles to lose condition resulting in leakage of urine.
The Emsella works by using high intensity, electromagnetic energy to strengthen all of the pelvic floor muscles, not just the subset of muscles that can be exercised by doing voluntary contractions (kegel or pelvic floor).
When these pelvic floor muscles are strengthened, continence is restored and you then have the confidence to enjoy normal daily activities without fear of losing bladder control.
During a 28 minute session on the Emsella chair, you will receive the equivalent of 11 thousand strong supramaximal pelvic floor contractions - can you believe it, 11 thousand!
During the session on the Emsella chair, you remain fully clothed and can read your book or watch TV, we like Pet Collection or Bondi Vet.
During the session you will feel a slight tingling as your pelvic floor muscles tighten, so far this has made everyone giggle when they first sit on the chair.
There is no recovery time so you can leave immediately afterwards and resume your normal daily activity.
The majority of people need a course of six sessions over a period of two to three weeks to see optimum results. Occasionally, if you are severely affected you may need to add on some more sessions.
Additional benefits of the Emsella Chair
Strenthened pelvic floor improves sexual satisfaction, there are two settings on Emsella, one setting to tighten and build the muscles that make our pelvic floor and one setting for tightness and sensation in the vagina.
Men have the same pelvic floor sling as women and can also benefit from Emsella for incontinence. Sometimes diabetes and a prostatectomy can be a cause of weakened pelvic floor muscles in men.
Erectile dysfunction is also helped by a course of Emsella as the increased blood flow to the groin area and increased muscle strength is beneficial for the penis too.
Who is Emsella not suitable for?
Pregnancy, if you have a pacemaker, metal plates such as hip replacements, defibrillator or if you have a copper coil.
Emsella is 100% pain free - it only works with muscles and muscle fibres and never interferes with pain receptors. '' HOWEVER IT DOES FEEL A LITTLE STRANGE BUT YOU DEFINITELY KNOW THAT IT'S WORKING!''
Everyone who has had a full course has felt the benefits:

Growing demand for feminine health
Traditional course of treatments – 6x treatment programme to correct a condition, ie incontinence or strengthen a pelvic floor
You will need a couple of days off in between , a minimum of 2 days because you are training the muscle and it needs to rest and recover
2x per week for 3 weeks
1x per week for 6 weeks (if noticeable incontinence, need to commit to 2x week)
3x per week if on a 2week holiday
You will still get muscle strengthening post programme.
Use as a preventative, or to support the core/ pelvic floor monthly or ad-hoc
